My class is made up of multi-cultural students that truly appreciate being at school and learning. We are a neighborhood school and a science alternative school. Many of the students live within walking distance, which allows the parents to walk them to school each day and check in with me in the classroom. This allows for strong ties to the community and the parents feel like a part of their child's learning.
Despite the challenges of teaching in a low-income/high poverty school, I provide my students with enjoyable, creative and meaningful learning experiences.
My students enjoy being able to move around the classroom and experience learning in many different styles. They love to read and to be read to! I inspire our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence in a positive, enjoyable way!
We are asking for a horseshoe table for our classroom. A horseshoe table is shaped perfectly for my students to sit around the table and I can hear and reach each of them during our guided reading and guided math times. It is very important to their learning that I am able to focus on their learning during group time. Having this table will assist in being able to smoothly do that.
A horseshoe table will allow my students to be able to be heard and sit comfortably during group time.
When I am working with my students in small groups at the horseshoe table, I will be able to easily hear the students read and help with their struggles. I will be able to reach them and the materials they are using during small group time. We will be able to interact more easily without having to stretch uncomfortably or not be able to hear each other.
